WICHITA – Join Wesley Children’s Hospital and other community sponsors at this year’s sixth annual Halloween in the Park. Come rain or shine, children of all ages are invited to join us Friday, Oct. 23, from 6-9 p.m. at Edgemoor Park, 5815 E. Ninth St., for a free night of trick-or-treating and Halloween fun.

 

“Halloween in the Park is such a great family event for Wichita,” said Mollie Triplett, Wesley pediatric trauma coordinator. “The event provides a fun trick-or-treating experience while educating kids on how to have a safe and enjoyable Halloween.”

 

Children will have the opportunity to get a free bear at Wesley’s Teddy Bear Clinic, trick-or-treat at various booths, participate in a Halloween craft project and tour an ambulance, police car and fire truck. There will also be a photo booth for families to take fun Halloween photos.

 

Halloween in the Park is supported by several community sponsors, including the City of Wichita, Wichita Park & Recreation, Wichita Police Department, Sedgwick County 911, Wendy’s, EagleMed, 100.5 The Wolf, Pepsi, Farmers Insurance, BOB FM 97.1, the Wichita Fire Department, Superior Rubber Stamp & Seal, Cox Farms, Davis Moore, Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital and many more.

 

“It’s great to see so many community organizations and businesses come together to support this safety event,” Triplett said. “It just keeps getting bigger and better every year.”
